Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The undisputed king of the cornball concept, Kevin Costner has an uncanny aptitude for gravitating toward the dopiest projects in sight, but this time he's outdone himself."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"More dull than offensive, Dragonfly keeps Costner on screen for nearly every scene, which pretty much compounds the movie's boredom quotient."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Preposterously plotted, highly sentimental supernatural thrillers"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"What Costner and everyone else is in constant danger of is spouting some awful dialogue."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"It's hard to take the weepy, oozing emotions of Kevin Costner's maudlin new film Dragonfly seriously."
‑ Andrew Rodgers, Zap2it.com
"The 'surprise' ending is as predictable as it is a long time coming."
‑ , Time Out
"A sappy, often absurd disappointment."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Boring, phony and a complete waste of talent."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Boy, does the final reel stink."
‑ Colin Kennedy, Empire Magazine
"If you're not expecting the second coming of Alfred Hitchcock ... Dragonfly is an agreeable way to pass the time."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"Despite the film's aspirations to soul healing, its uplift remains mechanical, like an escalator's."
‑ Paul Malcolm, L.A. Weekly
"A numbingly pretentious project."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Neither spooky nor otherworldly."
‑ Kit Bowen, Hollywood.com
"The screenplay credited to Brandon Camp, Mike Thompson and David Seltzer starts out with energy and substance, but reverts to time-filling repetition before it reaches the last-minute climax."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Costner's just a soggy slice of milquetoast here -- not bad, mind you, but not what you'd call a square meal, either."
‑ Kimberley Jones, Austin Chronicle
